Annual Report of the Vice-President 

J. P. HENICAN. 



\'r:w Qm broary tStb, 1918, 

His Excellency, Ruftin G. Pleasant, Governor of the Stale of Louisiana, and K\ 
Officio President of the Board of Administrators of the Charity Hospital 
of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, La, 

Your Excellency: I have the honor of presenting to you my annual 
as follows 

Not within the memory of the present generation have the demands upon the 
facilities and resources of the Charity Hospital been so urgent. Conditions beyond 
the control of human ingenuity have been encountered, in the light of which an 
unfaltering determination to fulfill its obligations to this commonwealth is dearly 
illustrated in the increase to twenty thousand five hundred patients treated in 
its various wards at the phenomenally low cost per patient per day of .989. All 

more surprising in this exposition of economy and frugal expenditure, of the 
funds available, when it is borne in mind that the usual practice of engaging in time 

acts, covering supplies of some of the more important and most uec< 
articles of upkeep, has been suspended through the unwillingness, or inability due 

rovernmenl of merchants and dealers to enter into such commit- 

ments, 

trer conception of the general status of the affairs of the institution may 
be gleaned from the following report of Mr. Matthews Secretary-Treasurer:

It may be noted here that contr ring bread, coal, ice, milk, meat, 

gauze, etc., expuiag during the past year, most of them on June 30, have resulted 
in an unprecedented increase in the cost of essential foods and medicines in 
use in the treatment and sustenance of patir i [I as emp] 

stiiution has been rendered necessary m many instances by reason of our inability 

tain drugs and chemicals at no matter what cost. These conditions, in 
junction with the increased cost of repairs and maintenance, a higher wage sc 
and Lht* ivtr-iiK-reasniLj number of patients, which must under all c ire inn stances 
be taken care of, evidence Unit we have been, and will l>c, further confronted with 
tin most serious problems in financing our institution.

increased to $$8,590.00 at the beginning of the pn 

appropriation, or fixed r. 1,000.00, added to which Lccumula- 

tions, through legal and hospital fees, donations, etc., aggregating $63,440.00, or a 

ncome, during ttte year 1917, of $323,440,00, while during the correspom 
period expenditures amounted to £360,080.00 It is too plainly apparent that the 
necessity of providing for the deficit of approximately Si 00,000 00 would have 
devoh the State, if it were not for the income derived through the generosity 

of many of our citizens who merit our sincerest gratitude However, our income

from other sources than that allotted by the Stater, has not, as it can well be seen, 
been sufficient to discharge Cttrreni and ever- increasing obligations. unwillingly 
forcing us to employ these reserve accumulations accruing from donations, 
etc. (which should properly be expended in permanent Lmprovemeni 
Income, so thai we find an mdebtednes I year on the pari of the 

Fund account to this Special Fund account oi DO. In my humble 

judgment, a moral obligation exists on the pari of the State to restore these funds 
heir proper position, and the extreme urgency of providing an appreciably 
larger appropriation to meet prevailing and pp momic conditio 

©illy too patent, and demands your very serious consideration. 

We regret to chronicle the death of Our former Vice-President, and esteemed co- 
worker, Mr Charles A Farwell, whose activities and unselfish devotion to th 

i of tin institution during his long service as a member of your Hoard of Ad- 
ministrators contributed, in no small measure, to the success of its past accom- 
plishments. 

We are justly proud of the ready response to the call of our Governim m upon 
number of our visiting stall, and we Eeel assured thai wherever 
duty leads them, they will reflect much credit upon our institution. Tl; 
true of the many noble women who have gone forth as nurses to alleviate th 

;s of such of our her T>u t< v , £ unfortunate to tall in battle 

in this tii <ie for a Lasting peace. 

Our assurance of grateful appreciation is extended to all those who have exerted 
a helpful influence in our common endeavor to carry out the fnmlam 
for which this hospital was established namely, the care of the afflicted. Its 
realization would be dimcull without th ^ operation of our Superintendent, 

W Stafford, House Surgeons M .1 Gelpi 1 1 ■ t - 1 H. W Kogtmayei our esteemed 
Secret Mr Fred. W. Matthews; Sister Stanislaus, and oti 

are keenly interested in the work allotted to them. 

In conclusion, I desire to convey my persona] thanks to the membei 
Lheir I03 aJ set vice at all times, as well as for their «es. 



Yours respectfully.

Report of the House Committee 



NOT Orleans, February I 

To tin Vice-President and Board of Administrators of the Charity Hospital, New 
Orleans. 

Gent Hiring the year, many plans for much needed and economic 

imp] me urgent, others of value as a menus of rv 

atiai commodities. While w carefully < 

gone into details, ascertaining the merits and the co 
that we cannot report the accomplishment of any notable improvement* 

ise in admissions, involving more nursing, more medical and surgical 
supplies, together with the excessive cost of other products, has forestalled any 
activity in the way of improvements. 

A Baken seems the most necessary ;u this til ^proximately I 

pouti h month which a year ago G 

per pound — and investigation proves thai a large sa\ bed m this 

An I r f J kint t with proper facilities for cold storage, is almost a from 

an economic view. The Quantity used is approximately l^ per annum; 

oitraet was S4.50 per ton. It is manifest that we could manufacture it 
:ji : ind have additional benefit of cold storage accommodations. 

An Electric Generating Plant, which as an addition to the existing steam plant 
oi tin Hospital, would unquestionably reduce the co ad power, and 

riaily reduce t: operating the Bakery and Ice Plants. 

Yours respectfully.

16 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1917 



Report of the Finance Committee 



New Orleans, February IS, 1918, 

To tlu Vice-President and Board of Administrators of tlu Chanty Hospital, New- 
ins. 

Gentlemen: -The Charity Hospital has been an integral part of the life of our 

great commonwealth for more than a century, and the demands upon it lur 
grown, year by year; the year just dosed showing in the statistical report of the 
Superintendent to be the largest on record. In peace, now in War, it has and is *! 
its full share to relieve suffering and to educate men to relieve it elsewhea 

It is t hope that at the next meeting of the General Assembly, an 

appropriation will be math sufficient to meet these demands, and a further appro- 
priation to covi unts borrowed from our special funds during the pi 
biennial period This amount, now totals £5 0,000.00, and as our special funds are 
made a ■ i > from legacies and restrict ions, it is only fair to assume that the 

nt will not overtook making some provision to restore it, wh- 
the Administration can undertake necessary permanent improvements, many of 

h are urgent as not only economical but essentially so that some food prod 
may be made under out own supervision, and the sanitary conditions properly 
guarded* 

Respectfully, 

\THAN S. STERN, Chairman.

I desire to call your attention to some of the above figures; for instance, in 
admi had the ear of any since the Hospital was opened, 

nearly 1,000 more than last year. The dailv average was larger, but remain 
at the end of the year was very much less; 7*4 against ^25 last year. The accident 
1 in number, being 393 more this year than in 1916. 

The per capita cost was increased this year, but not to the extent that I thought 

nld be, as we are stifl under Sl.OO, which 1 believe is the lowest per capita cost 

iv hospital in the country. 

The Outdoor Clinic cases showed a decided falling off, but as every hospital 
in the country has the same trouble, we should not worry about this. 

The gross death rate was .02' ; [owes than last year, a falling off that was very 
hie to notice, We had thirty-two Less Coroner cases than in 1916. 

In the Amphitheatre, we did 2,272 operations more than in 1916, which shows 
quite an in d proves that the surgeons are kept very b 

In the Pathological Department, with a smaller number oi : employees, we made 
5,645 more examinations of blood and other material than the previous year, We 
also treated 102 cases of dog bite more than the year before, which goes to prove 
that we had either more dog bites, or a better appreciation of the -id a 

consequent effort to minimize it, on the part of the patients. 



SUPBRINT1 S REPORT 19 



In the Drug Store, there was a falling off in the number of prescriptions tilled* 
but as the force bus been decreased, those remaining were kept Quite busy. 

In th? Dental Department, we have put Dr. A, J. Friedricba in charge of a 
new dental department, and he has done kim»1 work, us his report will show, In 
the Outdoor Department, they extracted 361 more teeth than last year, but in the 
other di ,< u ite a falling oft 

The X Kliv Department and Drug Store Storage Room have been put in good 
order. The wooden flooring hits been taken out. and cement flooring laid in. The 
partitions have been renovated and the three rooms have been well painted, and 1 
believe u meat will do better work from now on. 

The Record Room was changed from down In the Telephone Building, to the 

id iloor, where more room, as well as more light, was found. 

During the year, Sister Stanis e a lawn party, from which sin • 

$1,620.00, and has bought with this money quite a few things of interest to the 
Hospital. For instance, drinking fountains in aU the Hospital building 
Home and the Clina speaking tubes in the Nurses' Home, and electric call bells; 
floor repaired in class room; new marble-top tables and cooking ranges; linoleum 
in serving rooms, 18, 28, \2 t 40 and 46; paper press; 4 new marble tops for kitchen 
tables; cloth ts chutes in Main building, 

NEW EQUIPMENT 

We put linoleum on all the floors in the White Female Building at some cost, 
but believe that the cost will be justified by the results We had the Hudson 

vated; bought one motor truck to do our light hauling and a multi^raph equip- 
ment: a wood washer and garment press was needed and purchased. We b 
rugs, chairs, and linoleum for duTe; of the Hoi vated the tick. 

bought a jitney to remove patients from the Hospital to their homes; 3 new 

re purchased for Pathological Department; bought a mattress sterilizer, 

2 new cupboards and 50G pairs of new double blankets; -aid new desks in class room, 

■ 1 ) I TIONS AN D BETTERMENTS 

In additions and betterments, we covered the the third floor, White 

de Building, making quite an addition and allowing the patients to get out 
in the fresh air more than they were able to do before. A covering walk 

of the Tuberculosis Building was built, so that you can go now from iht main 1 mild 
inc to an) and not get wet during i tther \\Y put new 

drinking fountains in all the halls of all the buildings, which adds quite u good 
to the comfort of the 

To the Visiting Staff, particularly those who have remained in the city during 
war tim< a vote of thanks for their conscientious work, which ha** 

D done with some sacrifice to themselves. 
To the Interne Stall, who In their conscientious endeavors to fulfill the increased 
work due to the decreased number of internes, we also owe our thanks. 

To Sisitr Stanislaus and that noble band of Sisters of Charitv iv 

their hard work an intained through all tins dm 

lerfuJ organization, I owe my persona! thanks and i 

To House Surgeons, Drs. H- W. Kostma\ laurice J d. 

\\\ Matthews, Secretary-Treasurer, and Mr, John Ponder, Chief Engineer, t 

rsonal debt of gratitude, as they have through their effort 
the Hospital one in which adverse criticism is no longer heard.

34 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1917 



Pathological Department 



New Orleans, February 23, 1918, 

Br. S, W. Stafford, Superintendent, Charity Hospital, City. 

Sir- submit the following annual report of the Pathological Depart- 

of the Charity hospital foi 

You will note from the comparative figures that the work in llie various divi- 
sions of 11 iiKiii compares very Favorably with that of the preceding year, 
which is particularly gratifying because we have been obliged to perform the routine 
duties of i he department with less staff and help thai acies 
t»f the war explains the depletion of our laboratory force. En some divisions, 
tieularly the antitoxin and Pasteur, the work has in that for 1916. 
During 1917 the Department undertook the manufacture of diphtheria antifc 
which previously was bought from commercial houses, In addition we have ina i 
onr^ production of tetanus antitoxin. Through the manufacture of these important 
antitoxic sera the Hospital ha had abundance for its own use, but a surplus 
has been put on the market throughout In this way an extra 
Source of revenue for the Hospital has been iible through the work of the 
Pathological Department. It is uotew ; the sera used by ihe Hospital 
CtditUie of more than three times that of the yearly budget for the 
Department 

The Director, Dr. C. W. Duval, and Patholo- 

gist, Df G B. Adams, two house Pathologic Internes, a Technician, a dtener, and 
two porters. While the help in tfc .aunt is sufficient, this cannot be 

b>r li i ml [ would urj;e that there lie appointed an Assistant Patholo- 

gist in order th eiency of ilu Department can be maintained, With our 

at small staff, ii is , do all of the routine work incum- 

bered upoi an Institution the sitae of the Charity Hospital We

Roentgen Ray Department 



Xhw Orleans, La +j December 3], I'M 7. 
Dr. S> W, Stafford, Superintendent, Charity Hospital, City. 

Dear Sir— The Roentgen Ray Department, since its re-organization in June, 
1915 up to the present date, has undergone many important improvements for the 
betterment of the service expected of it, which the reports of the- past two years 
will -.how in part. It has been striving for perfection in efficiency to meet the m> ■■ 
hospital demands; nevertheless, its financial resources have had to be considered 
and guarded, and more so during this critical period of war prices, 

For consideration, I wish kindly to solicit attention here to the work of this 
department for the past year, while also presenting a comparative table of the pre- 
vious year. It is noticeable here that there was a decrease in the total amount of 
work. This can be partly accounted for by the fact that a strict adherence to the 
was m a in t aine d, relating to "Workmen Compensation Cases,* 1 as inaugurated 
during the current year, An amount of two hundred and sixty i .5260.00) dollars 
was realized from the various casualty companies tot the emergency work done; in 
addition to this, the aid rendered by the fluoroscopic machine. In all, as a ^v ! 
co-operation evidently effected a workable efficiency plus economy > 

You will please note, after consulting the Secretary- Treasure t's report, that 
in spite of the high cost of material, the total expenditure of this department was some 
few dollars less than last year, excluding any outside revenue. There is at present 
for sale probably a hundred dollars* worth of old glass in discarded negatives of no 
history value, which will be disposed of soon. 

During the latter part of the year, sanitary cement flooring was laid, and paint- 
ing was done. The department was enlarged by taking in the adjacent small e 
scopic room, so that all work, treatment, radiographic and fluoroscopic, is now con- 
fined and carried <>n in one place instead of several, as heretofore. It is urgei 
recommended that a Coolidge Tube Outfit be installed, in order that certain malig- 
nant conditions may receive more scientific treatment than they do at pre 
Castro-intestinal cases should be examined by the serial method

Report of the Directress of Nurses 



The Board of Adm aarity Hospital, New Orleans, La 

"ii well know the success or non success of a Training School is in most 
judged by the subjects turned out, and this vital question is uppermost in our 
minds today— with what expediency can \w turn out our pupils and a1 the 
timi jfied that they are competent Nurses. 

' 1 ' lji • ,!l1 owid tally uicreases our interest and compels 

us to the releasing of as many pupj prevent any serious injury 

to our Training School organization- We desire most earnestly to respond h 
demands for military needsj but must do so without causing detriment to our viek 
and the chool. However, we have lately been advised bv the 

National League of Nursing Education that nursing resources — at the present time 
are adequate to the immediate demand, and that any and all innovations are to be 
avoided until emergency justifies such introductions, as a short, course, etc. 

The great local demand for nurses to fill vacancies, made by enrollment in the 
Red Cross of a large number <>F the most experienced members of the profession, 
can he met with by a slight advance in the completion date, thus affording yout 
members experience in executive work and training school administration 

. Vk ' encourage women of ability to enter this line, and so are releasing, 

within a month or six weeks of completion time, students who are qualified to grasp 
the many opportunities now offered We have decided to postpone our public 
graduation exercises with the same intention. 

The war activities have made many vacancies in our lecturing staff. We regret 

v that there is a marked tendency on the part of some to shirk this important 

work of the Training School. It is a recognized fact that the proper standard can 

only be attained and maintained by proper teaching and good discipline and the 

output of the School depends upon these two factors. 

Another most important matter is the Nurses' Home. At present it is in a 
poor condition the lighting system is inadequate t< be concise the home 
requires a general renovation. We are In need of equipment for teaching purp 
of medical reference books and good literature. 

We are glad to report only minor illnesses this year among the nurses, and in 
most cases tonsillitis has been the cause of these indispositions; therefore, il seems 
almost imperative that the pupils have this organ removed before entering the 
Training School. 

Discipline is a neeessaiy element in a well conducted school, consequently 
those pupils who do not show a willingness to comply with the customs and rules 
should be rejected as unfit subjects. The Superintendent of Nurses is undoubtedly 
the best judge in such cases. 

The Child's Welfare Association, through their directress. Miss Railly. has 
offered oar Senior Classes the opportunity or obtaining experience in Field Work 
under the supciuitendeney of their capable Mrs. Bently. This widens the scope 
oj ->ur training and gives tin., pupils a practical experience, which will lit them for 
public health nursing. 



REPORT OF THE DIRECTRESS ui- XIRSKS 



4t 



The : Work is elective, but wu regret to say, that for some reason 

or other, our pupils do not show an aptitude for this line of work. 

The number i>f applications received this year to enter the Training School 

the number of ft -jet -turns -most of the rejec- 
have been made on account of applicants not having sufficient education or 
timit. 



There are now m tin- Training School:

. not including the Superintendent 
of Nurses and the Superintendent. We hope to graduate 23 nurses this 

year. 

craduding, we w press mir desire to co-operate with the Board in 

iblt way and thus relieve their anxiety regarding the finances of the Insti- 
tution during the present depression* 

We take advantage of this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to 1'J r. 
Stafford for his gen tiou or our efforts We also feel deeply grateful 

to tl. staff, and to 1 >rv Kostmayer and Gelpi for their untiring attention

JOG CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1917 



In Memoriam 



CHAS, A. FARWELL 



\\uER$\s, On the 1 7th day of May, 1917, the Almighty in His infinite wisdom 
summoned to hU heavenly reward, Mr, CHAS. A. FARWIil.L, the Vue Presi- 
dent of this Honorable Board. 

Be It Resolved, by the Board of Administrators of the Charity Hospital asseml 
that the following memorial Is adopted: 

For several years he has been a member of this Board, and has recently been 
its Vice-President, Always to the solution of vexatious questions a clear mind 
and an alert insight. His excellent business judgment, his devotion to its as- 
pirations, and his industrious attention to its affairs, frequently assisted in a 
quick determination of the matters presented to the Board for decision. 
Though he presided over the Board only for a fen months, he did so with tact 
and impartiality, A man or charitable inclinations, he will always be remem- 
bered by those associated with the Hospital for his kindness and bis courtesies 
He was a man who was honest, stiong, noble and true: lie had the eotn 
dare and to do. His word was sold, hi s promise fulfillment, and to the withered 
hand of poverty applying at the treasury of his compassionate heart, he always 
gave in a bountiful maimer. 

His ideals of human character were honor, virtue, faith and charity precious 

jewels of which he was the happy possessor, He left a legacy of glory to his 
children and one of admiration to his friends. 

The Board is sad in its loss of his aid and of lii © mpaniotisnip. In the full 
maturity of life be has passed fmm the mortal road to the immortal paths 
His memory will always be a solace to his friends and associates and this Board 
sorrows with his family in his death 

Be It Further Resolved, That this memorial be sent to his family, to whom is 
extended the sorrow and sympathy of this Board, and a copy of same to be 
spread upon the minuv
